I/Alphabe-Thursday

 Pine needles coated with ice

I is for ICE/ICICLES

 All three photos are from my archives. So far this year I haven't seen much ice or many icicles that I've wanted to photograph. But I'm sure I will someday soon.

 Icicles created by waves washing over rock

Willow branches coated in ice during last winter's ice storm

Your photos certainly express the cold weather that is hanging on here.

I have never seen ice like this on plant material and these shots are fabulous.

Cool series on the icicles.. Pretty formations and colors, well done! Have a happy day!

Lowell said...

Very pretty, but I'm sorry, I have become partial to palm fronds waving in the breeze at the beach! :)

Crafty Gardener said...

Wonderful photos, ice was my choice for I as well, just haven't got around to posting yet.

Shammickite said...

I'd rather see raindrops really!

Bethany Carson said...

The first photo is beautiful! Ice can be lovely, but also dangerous! I don't mind if we miss out on it this year.

William Kendall said...

That is definitely my kind of weather!

Mary Hone said...

So beautiful! I really like the second one.

see you there! said...

Ice can be sort of magical to me as we don't get that much of it here.

Great shapes and forms for your excellent photos, but they give me a chill just looking at them.

Sandra said...

all three are beautiful but the second one of the waves washing is something i have never seen and is amazing to me...

TexWisGirl said...

lovely! the middle 'teardrops' remind me of a chandelier. :)

Judy said...

A coating of ice can make the mundane look magical. Too bad it also can be so damaging.

Gillian Olson said...

Ice does make things look dramatic, but nice that you haven't had any this year. Pretty mild here so far too.

Karen S. said...

Lovely, super gorgeous photos! But gosh I need to catch up soon with Jenny and these posts, as I've got lost in life and my posts for Jenny are so far behind!

Sylvia K said...

Awesome captures as always!! They take my breath away!! You do get the best shots of everything and I love to visit your blog!! Hope your week is going well!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Oh I would go out in search of these to photograph if I lived there but fortunately I do not live there. The pine needle one is great.

Rose said...

What a lot of icicles! That second shot is what I am talking about...amazing.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Your photos of the ice are lovely. I especially like the one with the pine needles.

RedPat said...

Beautiful! At least the sun is out today and it's not so grey.

Linda W. said...

Ice is so fun to photograph!

Pamela Gordon said...

Beautiful icicles photos. We haven't had many here either. Too cold! :)

Ginny said...

Each one of these is stunning, and is ice in a different form. As I got to each picture, I was oohing and ahhing. Wonderful.

Giga said...

Beautifully it looks in the pictures, but I would not want such a cold winter. Regards.

I love when the ice crusted branches of the willow chime in the breeze. . . .

Gorgeous icicle shots!!

Ruth Hiebert said...

I am always mindful that ice can be so damaging in certain places,but it has amazing beauty.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Yes, you have a fine variety of icicles.

Randy said...

These are all amazing.

edenhills said...

Very beautiful. We haven't had much for pretty icicles this year either. I'm fine with not having lots of ice.

Chandra said...

Hi Tina,
Wonderful photos!
The 2nd one, icicles on the rock formed by waves, was a really nice surprise.
Peace :)

Stephanie said...

Brrrrr and beautiful ice images.

Pondside said...

No icicles here, but there may yet be some. Lovely images!

Gattina said...

Wow ! beautiful pictures ! Now I am freezing, lol !!

Kathy said...

We have lots of pine needles but no ice on them this year. Thank goodness! Although it has been cold for several weeks. I love that last photo of the willow branches

cieldequimper said...

You're after my heart, aren't you? :-)

Jim said...

Pretty icicle pictures, Ms. EGTG. Nature showing her other side, the cold and wet one.

Really lovely captures of ice:)

A Quiet Corner said...

Just gorgeous...:)JP

Felicia said...

beautiful, love the first image.

Lmkazmierczak said...

Terrific shot...you have such a great eye for your blog presentations♪

storybeader said...

the pine needles look really cool. And I always love icicles near running water. Something about opposites are so enticing! {:-Deb

Gunilla Bäck said...

Wonderful shots of the icicles. We have a lot of them too.

Pamela Beers said...

I think icicles are beautiful the way they reflect light and the objects from which they hang. You always capture the beauty of things most people take for granted. Lovely photos.

kelley jensen said...

I love these icy shots, especially the first

Sandra Black said...

Beautiful pictures, they remind me of the time when we lived in Delaware and there was an ice storm and the trees were all bent over with the ice. I never see that kind of extreme here in Northern Ireland. dropping in from Alphabe Thursday.
